  • I put a hurtin' on the bottle
    Baby now I'm blind enough to see
    I've been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me

    I was veering for the white line of the shoulder
    Faded lights all cast upon the wall
    Baby I know we've been getting older
    But you're never too old to learn to crawl

    I put a hurtin' on the bottle
    Baby now I'm blind enough to see
    I've been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me

    I met you with your thumb out in the alley
    I know no one ever comes around here no more
    Been looking for a peak inside the valley
    Been searching for a key outside your door

    I put a hurtin' on the bottle
    Baby now I'm blind enough to see
    I've been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me

    Been riding high on low expectations
    It's like singing loud with no one left to hear
    I've been drinking from the well of inspiration
    But it's all falling on these wasted ears

    I put a hurtin' on the bottle
    Baby now I'm blind enough to see
    I've been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me

    I put a hurtin' on the bottle
    Baby now I'm blind enough to see
    I've been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me

    Been drinking whiskey like it's water
    But that don't touch the pain you put on me Writer/s: Caitlin Rose, Jeremy Ivey, Margo Price, Mark Thomas Fredson
